Transcript of Claude Monet
Claude’s Monet's parents were Adolphe and Louise Monet and Leon was Claude's brother.
Monet had two wives: Camille Pissarro and Alice Hoschede.
He had two children: Micheal and Jean.
Claude Oscar Monet was born on November 14, 1840 in Paris France.
Monet moved to Le Harve as a young boy and worked in the family business.
As Claude got older, he started drawing caricatures for extra money.
Eugène Boudin found great interest in his artistic abilities.
Monet started going to the Académie Suisse in Paris.
He was called in 1861, the middle of his schooling, to the military to fight in Algeria.
He was discharged for health reasons and eventually bought his way out of the army.
After Monet got back to Paris, he started training with the Dutch painter Johan Bartohld Jongking.
Monet finally submitted his paintings to the official Salon in 1865.
Even though he got much exposure, Monet fell into financial harship and depression.
Then, in 1868, patron Louis-Joachim Gaudibert provided Monet with a pension.
The Franco-Prussian War began in 1970, and Monet and Camille fled to London.
While in London, Monet found the works of J. W. M. Turner and was very inspired.
Claude also met the art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel who was very interested in Monet's work.
Back to France
Claude's father died in 1871, and he used this as an opportunity to return to France.
Monet moved to the riverside village of Argenteuil.
Monet and the painters of Argenteuil had their first exhibition in 1874.
This exhibition caused a stir because of the painters' opposition to the Salon.
One critic called the group of painters "Impressionists" for the first time.
In 1833, Monet moved his family to Ginervy (later known as the Seine) and was based there for the rest of his life.
This house had many ponds, exotic plants, many varieties of trees, and a small bridge which he used in many of his paintings.
While Monet was in Ginervy, his second wife died in 1911.
Then, three years later, his son died.
He then slipped into a depression which he never climbed out of.
He then focused on his paintings more, using them as a kind of therapy.
Sadly, Claude Oscar Monet died on December 5, 1926.
Claude Monet was known as the leader of the Impressionist movement, and is now known worldwide.
He has inspired many young artists by showing that breaking tradition is okay and by never giving up on what he believed in, even during rough times.
Claude Monet and I both love art.
We both like nature; he liked painting it, and I like being outside.
In art, we both like to break tradition; he was one of the first artists to let nature paintings stand as complete works, and I draw, paint, and sculpt in ways that not many people have seen before.

Claude Monet and I live during different time periods; he lived during the 1800s and 1900s, while I live during the 2000s.
We both like different types of art; he liked paintings of nature, while I'm more into abstract paintings.
Claude Monet is known as the leader of the Impressionist movement. He started off small, but now he is known as one of the greatest artists. He is known worldwide and has inspired many others.
